  • A comprehensive check-up with x-rays
  • A complimentary oral cancer screening
  • Intraoral photos, which allow you to see your teeth up close so we can show you exactly what we see
  • A professional cleaning based on your specific needs
  • Polishing for beautiful, shiny teeth
  • A fluoride treatment to help strengthen your enamel and protect your teeth from cavities

Questions on Oral Health

Scientists have observed that there is a link between your dental health and certain systemic conditions. If you have heart disease, diabetes, respiratory disease, or any other chronic health concern, please let us know so that we can plan your treatment accordingly.
